Mortarr will be featured in Twin Cities startup week

Mortarr is participating in the BETA Showcase and is a finalist for Twin Cities Startup Week’s Emerging Startup Award, according to a press release.

The Albert Lea-based company was invited to participate in the BETA Showcase on Monday at TCF Stadium.

According to TCSW, the showcase runs a bit like a science fair, but for startups.

“The event gives growing businesses, like ours, the opportunity to showcase what we’ve done and what’s in store in the fast-approaching, ever-exciting future,” Mortarr co-founder and Chief Operation Officer Steve Pulley said. “The audience will be a mix of entrepreneurs, investors, students, and media all looking to find the next best thing.”

Mortarr’s also a finalist for the Emerging Startup Award, part of the TCSW awards ceremony on Wednesday. The award category is all about recognizing a new, hungry addition to the Minnesota startup ecosystem, according to the release.

Over 200 nominations were received for the awards’ seven categories and each category now has three finalists.

“We’re honored to be included among the other finalists,” Pulley said.

Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony Wednesday at the Science Museum of Minnesota.
